BACKGROUND An antiviral drug is needed for the treatment of patients suffering from yellow fever. Several compounds present in plants can inactive in vitro a wide spectrum of animal viruses. AIM In the present study the inhibitory effect of essential oils of Lippia alba, Lippia origanoides, Oreganum vulgare and Artemisia vulgaris on yellow fever virus(More)
The inhibitory effect of Lippia alba and Lippia citriodora essential oils on dengue virus serotypes replication in vitro was investigated. The cytotoxicity (CC50) was evaluated by the MTT assay and the mode of viral inhibitory effect was investigated with a plaque reduction assay. The virus was treated with the essential oil for 2 h at 37 masculineC before(More)
Prostacyclin improves symptoms, exercise tolerance, and survival in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension. However, the difficulty of administration (whether intravenous, subcutaneous, or by inhalation) often causes side effects that can reduce the patient’s quality of life and which may sometimes be serious.

Introduction and objective. Prostacyclin therapy is an effective treatment for severe pulmonary hypertension. Sil-denafil, a selective phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor, induces selective vasodilatation of the pulmonary vessels. A sy-nergistic effect has been described for these two drugs. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of(More)
We studied prospectively 35 elder women aged 65-82 years, with isolated severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, referred for aortic valve surgery. We assessed diastolic function by TEE before and after cardiac surgery, although follow-up data were collected in 26 patients. The examination was performed prior to surgery and 6 months after. The control group(More)
